At Syncfusion, we strive to build world-class products that can exceed developer and user requirements.

6. Community License—no credit card required

One of Syncfusion’s most interesting offerings is the Community License. It provides free access to all our Syncfusion Essential Studio products, including the Xamarin suite, for individual developers and small businesses. This licensing model is ideal for hobby projects and small businesses. Please check this FAQ for more detail.

You can check out our other licensing models here.

7. Weekly NuGet releases will not keep you waiting

We proudly stand behind our products and will work with you under tight deadlines to help ship your products on time. Along with four major, scheduled releases per year, you can update our products every week through our weekly NuGet release from nuget.org.

NuGet is a Visual Studio extension. It makes it easy to add, remove, and update libraries and tools in Visual Studio projects that use the .NET Framework. This helps in providing libraries and resources online.  We can directly install our libraries into a Visual Studio project through NuGet packages.

8. Always evolving with the Xamarin market and focusing on the future

Xamarin is a technology where we build on the work of our predecessors. We keep up with the latest in Xamarin and update our products accordingly. We frequently conduct webinars, host Xamarin Dev Days, and sponsor Xamarin Developer Summits where you can catch us and discuss development with our techies. You can watch one of our Xamarin interviews on YouTube.

9. Free UI templates and real-time samples that can be easily plugged and played

Creating a great user interface (UI) is very important to retain users on your app. Creating this kind of design in cross-platform development is not as easy as in native development.

We really understand the need in Xamarin to produce the best UI. We provide more than 100 UI views to build complex designs from a shared codebase. These are 100+ essential XAML screens to build cross-platform apps quickly using Xamarin.Forms. They have a clear separation of view, view model, and model, and work with popular MVVM frameworks. The layouts are optimized to provide the perfect look and feel in both phones and tablets.
